Slippage

Post by Ghost11365 » Mon Nov 11, 2013 7:10 pm

Does anyone have a slippage % that they use in test that is pretty accurate/standard for trading equities that can/should be used for back testing?

I like Tim Arnold.

I think you can test and trade with the parameters as they come with TB.
Small differences, if any, will take months of real trading before come up.
